The trailer for Tina Fey and Anne Hathaway’s new rom-com series will make you emotional AF
Tina Fey, Anne Hathaway, and almost every single one of our favorite celebs under the sun will star in Amazon’s Modern Love, a romantic comedy series based on The New York Times column of the same name. The first trailer for the eight-episode show was released on July 27th, and we’re more than ready to fall in love with this series.
Some of our other famous faves slated to appear in the series are Dev Patel, Catherine Keener, Sofia Boutella, Gary Carr, Olivia Cooke, Brandon Victor Dixon, John Gallagher, Jr., Andy Garcia, Julia Garner, Cristin Milioti, Andrew Scott, John Slattery, and Shea Whigham—to name a few.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the teaser trailer premiered at the Television Critics Association (TCA) panel. Hathaway, Milioti, Carr, and consulting producer and the column’s editor Daniel Jones attended the panel and talked about what viewers can expect from the show.
"My story is called 'Take Me As I Am,'" Hathaway told the audience. "I am playing a woman who is learning how to find love while also [beginning to process having] bipolar disorder. Her story is based on a true experience from author Terri Cheney.
“I was really humbled by this experience,” Hathaway said of her coming to better understand what it means to have bipolar disorder. “It wrecked me for a month afterward…[but being able to walk away from it] expanded my compassion so much for people who have no choice in this matter.”
"Mine sticks pretty close to the original column," said Milioti of her Modern Love plot, "which is this woman got pregnant unexpectedly and the only person who is there for her is the doorman of her building and they develop this [father-daughter] relationship."
Modern Love Season 1 premieres on Amazon on October 18th.
And we could have a long-running series on our hands: Jones said there are more than 700 published “Modern Love” stories to choose from. Bring it on.
